Riverfarm – new Vietnamese restaurant in D2

I had a lunch appointment with my friend but haven’t decided where to go yet. Then my friend suggested a new place in Nguyen Van Huong street. She said it is a Vietnamese Restaurant. And it allows dog! So we decided to check it out. 

The address is 199b Bis Nguyen Van Huong street. If you come from BIS direction, it is located right when the street turn to left. The entrance is quite clear. Should be easy to find. 

They have outdoor seating which would be nice to sit if it was not cloudy and almost raining. We sat under the roof, but still can see the river view. It was good enough. 

I looked at the menu and everything is so expensive! Pork ribs with 5 spices is 150k vnd. Beef skewer with noodle rice is 200k vnd. Since I didn’t know how good they are, I chose their lunch set. They have 3 kind of menu for lunch set. 

Braised chicken with chili and lemongrass

I ordered braised chicken with chili and lemongrass. The other 2 lunch set menu was not appealing to me (catfish, and fried egg with pork). Although my friend said the fried egg was good. 

Each of lunch set menu comes with steam rice, veggie and soup. The chicken I ordered was delicious. Too bad they didn’t serve it hot. The soup was warm as well so we asked them to reheat it. But overall the food was good. And another plus is the price. For one set only cost us 45k vnd! Very cheap for a restaurant with nice view, and very surprising as well because I saw a 200k vnd price on lunch set menu. But when the receipt came, it was only 45k vnd. 

There is a black dog who is friendly and always trying to play with my dog. This place is dog-friendly. Definitely need to come again with our dogs next time!
